Mint 17: Mate or Cinnamon for AO722

Post by jazz.h »

What do you think, what version should I install on my Acer Aspire One 722?
This netbook is based on: AMD Brazos platform APU C-50, 4GB of RAM, ssd, 11.6" screen, 6-cell battery, HDMI out.
For more than 2 years I've been using Mate 13 64bit, it was more responsive than Cinnamon at the time.
Should I try with Cinnamon 64bit now?

I would stick with Mate 64 bit. Even if Cinnamon would run on there it's probably going to be a little slow. I use Mate even on really powerful computers because I like it better than Cinnamon!

Using MATE on two netbooks. It's working out well.
